Extra Tips For Sweet Potato Tacos

  • Sweet potatoes: use organic sweet potatoes if you can – I find them to be more sweet and flavorful then non-organic.
  • Tortillas: use flours of you choice. I love corn & wheat blend or use gluten free tortillas if needed.
  • Guacamole or avocados: you can either use the simple guacamole recipe or use avocado slices with fresh lime juice over top.
  • How to store: to properly store leftovers – place ingredients in separate airtight containers and ziplock bags in refrigerator. Then reheat as needed and re-assemble.
